Hebrews 11:7-8

Context
11:7 By faith Noah, when he was warned about things not yet seen, with reverent regard 1  constructed an ark for the deliverance of his family. Through faith he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.

11:8 By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to a place he would later receive as an inheritance, and he went out without understanding where he was going.

Hebrews 11:17

Context
11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac. He had received the promises, 2  yet he was ready to offer up 3  his only son.

1 tn Cf. BDAG 407 s.v. εὐλαβέομαι 2, “out of reverent regard (for God’s command).”

2 tn Here “received the promises” refers to the pledges themselves, not to the things God promised.

3 tn Grk “he was offering up.” The tense of this verb indicates the attempt or readiness to sacrifice Isaac without the actual completion of the deed.
